Over the last few months I've been reintroducing minerals and vitamins. Started with D3 which was new to me then Folic Acid as again tests showed low. At intervals then reintroduced B12, selenium and zinc. The change was incredible, more energy and less joint pain etc. Only one to go now-magnesium as sleep does not come easily. Started with magnesium oxide last Tuesday but felt 'dull' the following day , same Thursday. Friday, with my new found energy and after a good nights sleep I felt ok again so assumed the body had got used to the Mg so got on a bus to go shopping. Everything fine and when I returned I walked easily up the hill to home and didn't feel I was dragging my body or breathless so felt elated. Into the evening though I started with abdominal pain and ultimately diarrhoea. No rise in temperature so looks like the magnesium. Searched on Mediguard for alternative types and all had the same side effect. As anyone got any suggestions as to which might be less harsh on the gut or whether to take it with food or before or after? Many thanks
